Kyoto Gion Matsuri 2012

Hi ! Gion Matsuri is already finished. I hope everyone had a good time in Kyoto even if the weather began very hot and humid. Yesterday was one of the biggest event of the Festival called " Yama Hoko Junko " ( The Grand Procession )
From 9:00am, the first " Nagashina " starts moving over a formal ceremony confirms the order of the floats. The parade of the Yama and Hoko are carried and pulled by 12 to 50 people from Shijo Karasuma street, then turning around the corners at the intersections Kawaramachi-Shijo, Kawaramachi-Oike and Oike-Shinmachi. Hoko are really impressive and massive float, the weight turns around 10 tons and the high around 25 metres. On the second floor of the Hoko, we could discern the page boys and some musicians playing the traditional Gion Bayashi. The parade was the best opportunity to discover Japanese art and to approach the culture and the history of Kyoto.
